If you look at my Instagram feed, Facebook Page or anywhere else that I tend to post my photos, you’ll know that here lately I’ve had a small obsession with waterfalls. There’s just something about a cascade of water that is awe-inspiring and that leaves me no choice but to photograph it. Oh, and my home state of Kentucky just so happens to be full of wonderful waterfalls! I figured I’d take some time to show off some of my more recent waterfall shots, and maybe tell some of the stories behind them.Read More
We’ve been in the midst of a deep freeze here in the Bluegrass state, and that has meant that the waterfalls across Kentucky have been freezing.

Some were even suggesting that it’s the most the falls have frozen in several years. This was just too good of an opportunity to pass up! I messaged @Brian2774 on Instagram and we made plans to head out to the falls shortly after daybreak on Saturday morning.

It is, in my opinion, the best way to find adventure and solitude in our ever-crowded Gorge!
